FAA Had Flagged Critical Sensor In Boeing 737 MAX Over 200 Times

A widely-used sensor that malfunctioned in two fatal Boeing 737 Max crashes has been flagged to the FAA more than 200 times since 2004, a CNN analysis found.

Business INsider reports 216 incident reports outlined cases where the angle of attack sensor — which measures a plane's orientation in the sky — failed or had to be replaced or fixed.

About one fifth of those incidents involved Boeing aircraft.
